BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Beacon Mutual names new CEO


WARWICK, R.I.--Beacon Mutual Insurance Co. has named a new president and chief executive officer who promises to reform the troubled workers compensation insurer and restore the faith of policyholders, regulators and employees.

James V. Rosati fills a post formerly held by Joseph A. Solomon, who was fired last year after an audit of Rhode Island's largest insurer found several problems. These included a business owned by a former board member that had misclassified its payroll and received preferential pricing for coverage despite an unfavorable loss history.

Mr. Rosati has been an investment banker with Providence, R.I.-based Riparian Partners, which specializes in mergers and acquisitions, and brings more than 25 years of management and financial expertise, Warwick, R.I.-based Beacon Mutual said in a statement Thursday.

Mr. Rosati has also served on the board of Providence Mutual Fire Insurance Co. since 1993.
